‘Crossroads’, Britney Spears’ popular 2002 film, is scheduled to return to theatres. The Trafalgar Releasing, Sony Music Entertainment, and RCA Records global fan event is set for October 23rd and 25th. The timing couldn’t be better, as it coincides with the release of Britney’s impending tell-all memoir, ‘The Woman in Me’, on October 24th. This thrilling film resurrection brings together Princess of Pop lovers and promises to be an amazing experience.
Shonda Rhimes wrote the screenplay for ‘Crossroads’, which was inspired by Britney Spears’ creative vision, and Tamra Davis directed it. Anson Mount, Zoe Saldaa, Taryn Manning, Kim Cattrall, and Dan Aykroyd star in the ensemble cast. This teen dramedy first appeared on the big screen while Britney was at the peak of her music career. Despite varied reviews, Britney’s performance shone brightly. The film was also a commercial success, grossing $61.1 million worldwide against a budget of about $12 million.
‘Crossroads’ tells the story of three childhood friends who revive their friendship while traveling cross-country. Director Tamra Davis reflected, saying, “I recently rewatched Crossroads and was so enthralled with the time capsule of nostalgia that this incredible ensemble cast brings to the screen. Britney is absolutely breathtaking to watch, and Shonda is showing us her early expertise in writing complicated female characters.”
The fan event promises a special sing-along featuring two Britney Spears songs from ‘Crossroads’ that were previously unseen on the big screen.
‘Crossroads’ to compete with Taylor Swift’s ‘The Eras Tour’?
While ‘Crossroads’ makes its triumphant return, it will compete with another major event, Taylor Swift’s ‘The Eras Tour’. Swift’s performance film will be shown in hundreds of theatres across North America beginning October 13th. ‘Crossroads’, on the other hand, will be shown in around 875 cinemas globally. Regardless of the competition, Britney’s film will always have a special place in the hearts of fans.
